Brad Stevens impressed with Phil Pressey

Boston Celtic's head coach Brad Stevens had a lot to take away from day one of training camp yesterday in Newport, RI. Point guard Phil Pressey surprised enough people in summer league to earn himself a contract and a spot on this season's roster. It seems like Pressey hasn't lost a step since Orlando heading into Newport. With Rajon Rondo missing from drills, Stevens had high praise for the un-drafted rookie:
Unlike anyone else that is healthy on the Celtics roster, Pressey is a pure point guard. Stevens has already expressed that he expects Avery Bradley to handle the PG duties until Rondo can return, something Bradley has mightily struggled with in the past.

With MarShon Brooks and Jordan Crawford both known as players that have never met a shot they don't like, Pressey may be the best option to run the point for the team's success... if he continues to catch the eye of Coach Stevens.
